Weber introduces new printer-applicator

April 2, 2013

The new Model 4300e Pro-Apply is designed to save energy by eliminating the use of compressed air.

Weber Packaging Solutions has introduced its new Model 4300e Pro-Apply all-electric label printer-applicator, a unit that saves energy by eliminating the use of compressed air.

Engineered, manufactured and available only from Weber, the unit prints labels in a next-out mode, automatically removes them from their liner, and retains them by vacuum on applicator pad. Unlike most conventional label printer-applicators, however, the new Model 4300e all-electric system creates that vacuum with electrically-operated fans instead of external compressed air.

“Reduced energy consumption and increased energy savings were the driving force behind our new all-electric system,” says Tom Michalsen, Weber’s marketing director. “Many companies today want to meet sustainability objectives by reducing energy consumption. In addition, newly built plants and logistics facilities sometimes don’t include the installation of compressed air.”

As a carton approaches the Model 4300e system, the pad gently applies a label to the top or side of a case or package. The system handles labels up to 6 inches wide and 6 inches in length, and will print labels at up to 16 inches per second. A wide selection of thermal/thermal-transfer print engines is available to produce text, bar codes and graphic images at 203, 300 or 600 dpi.

The Model 4300e Pro-Apply operates with Weber’s exclusive print-apply software, which simplifies label formatting, editing and printing. Weber also manufactures a wide variety of blank and pre-printed pressure-sensitive label materials.
